A wonderful anthology of creatively re-imagined tales based on classic stories from the past. All of the stories are excellent. Neil Gaiman fans will be well pleased with his offering, but there are others worthy of special mention as well. Losing Her Divinity, by Garth Nix; When First We Were Gods, by Rick Yancey; and Awakened by Melissa Marr are particular standouts for me, but my favorite has to be Saladin Ahmed's Without Faith, Without Law, Without Joy, based on Spenser's The Faerie Queene. Saladin Ahmed has once again created an incredibly evocative world that draws the reader in and leaves you wanting more. His tale is beautiful, emotional, and stays with you long after you've finished reading. If you haven't read his work before, this will make you want to go find it.
This anthology is a delight from beginning to end. I highly recommend it.
